A healthy mom is a happy mom

My new year resolution (by default) is to improve my health further by eating well, sleeping well and exercising daily.

I say "by default" because my new routine of having to get up at 6.30am to get the girl ready for school, gives me a half hour free time spot from the time she goes off to school with daddy to the time I have to get the boy ready for kindy.

I will use that time to exercise daily. I will rotate my exercise to aerobic type (good for the heart), toning type (good for the shape which has gone out of shape. Haha.) and stretching type (good for relaxation which is just as important) so that I won't overwork myself. Sounds good? Yes, it sounds good to me and it will be even better if I can keep it up! lol. I've tried it out for a few days now and it feels great. It feels so good to have done my exercises, showered etc before I start off my day. Its wonderful. It takes a bit of discipline but it feels good to be able to do it.

Good exercise will lead to better sleep too. As for food, I will continue to eat less rice and more vegetables and fruits but I still can't seem to keep myself off those crunchy deep friend stuff. Hmm....

Hopefully, in addition to good health benefits, I will get good shape benefits too! Hahaha. At the end of last year, I was trying so hard to lose 5 pounds but instead I gained 5 pounds! Oh bother! Now, I have 10 pounds to lose! I don't eat very much during the weekdays but during weekends I tend to pig out! I have to stop my weekend bingeing. Ok. Now, I've got me another new resolution. Hehe.

Whats your new year resolution?

  1. Good for you. I'm also a mother of 4 kids and finding time for myself is almost impossible.

  2. So happy that u r keeping ur exercise regime. The key is to do it regularly & see the difference. Wishing u good health always

  3. I can do good at working out in the morning once my baby girl gets in a better sleeping pattern. Hard to lose weight when you dont get enough sleep.
